Mayoral Wager on World Series -- Food at Stake

10/26/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Commissioner's Trophy isn't the only thing on the line when the Texas Rangers play the San Francisco Giants in the 2010 World Series -- two hometown mayors have each stepped up to the plate to make a serious bet on the outcome.

TMZ has learned ... San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom (right) and the mayor of Arlington, TX, Robert Cluck (left), have agreed to make a wager on the series.

Here's the deal -- each mayor has agreed that the loser will provide a day of community service in the winner's town while wearing a jersey of the winning team.

But there's more -- the losing mayor will also ship the winning mayor a bunch of delicious hometown goodies. If SF loses, Newsom has agreed to ship Dungeness crab, sourdough bread, Ghirardelli chocolate and Anchor Steam beer.

If Texas loses, Cluck has agreed to ship over BBQ food from a local joint called Spring Creek BBQ ... said to be the best in TX.

Game 1 is set for tomorrow night.

Spring Creek is the best barbecue like Taco Bell is the best Mexican.

But then again, if I was the mayor of Arlington, I wouldn't have put that much thought into what to send to the Giants anyway, since it won't have to happen. It's like me telling my three year old if he doesn't **** his pants today, he can have a Bentley.

Spring Creek is one of the worst BBQ joints in Texas. It is the equivalent of BBQ fast food. I would rank it lower than McDonald's mystery meat McRib.

Kimberly's ex husband, Gavin Newsome, is pretty hot, i'll give him that much, his best friends wife thought so too , so they hooked up , GN got a divorce from Kimberly, who is also good looking, and smart and now gets billions of dollars a second working at FOX.

DON'T FORGET TO VOTE NOVember 3 NEXT wednesday for you morons who don't know.

"punish your enemies" Mr. Obama suggested at the MEXICOans speech this past weekend

"reward your friends" he added, guess that's what UNITED is all about

Spring Creek is a chain. Not very good at all. The best in the area is the Railhead in Ft worth or Angelos.

Spring Creek is a poor quality chain. We might as well send over McRibs or ribs from Burger King. "considered the best in Texas". What a joke.

Spring Creek is TERRIBLE! Must have mistaken it for the WORST BBQ in Texas. Try Lulings, Papa's, Hickory Hollow or even Demeris ALL Much better choices that Spring Creek, guess the mayor is trying to punish the SF Mayor.
